Just a wee post my friends with some suggestions for those of you who are possibly not as organised as some with Christmas just the other side of this weekend … have to admit I wasn’t really up to speed myself this year! I ended up with my run around Hebden Bridge this week instead of the first week in December. This means the last few evenings have been spent with a glass of Bailey’s (or two) and a fair few rolls of wrap, lots of ribbon and quite a number of bells, baubles and bling to dress the packages!
I filled in 3 Festive Fandango cards this week whilst shopping locally for everything so that’s always a bonus. This great scheme started in 2010 an everyone gets behind it collecting stickers from all the independent shops and cafes in Hebden Bridge and Mytholmroyd. We are still giving stickers out so here are a few suggestions for last minute gifts if you are shopping with us these last 3 days before Christmas Day:
Bronwen Tyler Jones – jewellery and mini sculptures and amulets
Louise Hall – ceramics
Claire Holmes – textiles
Bronte Moon – 100% merino scarves and stoles woven in Yorkshire
Casey Allum – limited edition prints, stationery and china
The Stitch Society – aprons for crafters, cooks and gardeners
